There are many aspects of winter weddings that make them unique and beautiful. From beautiful snow-covered sceneries for pictures to venues that make for cozy celebrations, unique details of winter weddings tie together to create an atmosphere that is not only warm and inviting but hopelessly romantic.
One of the ways to set the tone and theme of your winter wedding is picking the right colors, especially for the attire. Do you want your wedding to be elegant and warmly inviting? Maybe you’re looking to keep some of the details of your wedding classic, but you also want to modernize certain aspects.
Or perhaps, you just want to keep your wedding fun and casual. No matter what you have in mind for your wedding, here are three color palettes that help create atmospheres that are perfect for any winter wedding.
Wedding Color Palette #1: Navy & Marsala
Warm and Elegant
Using warm colors is a great way to set a cozy atmosphere for your winter wedding. Pairing deep and rich colors like navy and marsala will give your wedding a look that is not only warm and inviting, but elegant as well. Dress your bridesmaids in marsala and compliment them perfectly by choosing navy tuxedos for your groomsmen. We’re a big fan of Weddington Way’s winter bridesmaid dress collection where nearly every gown comes in Marsala, and this rental collection from The Black Tux has navy wedding tuxedos in a range of shades and is a great option for guys who are feeling non-committal. These deeper-toned colors stand out against snow-covered backdrops and enhance the warmth of a winter wedding romance.
Wedding Color Palette #2: Olive & Black
Classic and Modern
Let’s face it, nothing looks more classic and sharp than a black tuxedo. Black tuxes have been a popular choice for weddings, no matter what season. For a winter wedding, we recommend taking this classic look and pairing it with the soft and subtle color, olive. Olive is a great choice because it not only accents black nicely, but its modern and earthy appearance look great on anyone. Groomsmen will look timeless in black tuxes and olive can be incorporated not only in the bridesmaid dresses but the flower bouquets or even table centerpieces.
Wedding Color Palette #3: Plum & Grey
Casual and Fun
If you’re looking to set a tone that is more fun and casual for your winter wedding, we recommend pairing together various tones of grey with the groomsmen tuxedos and shades of plum for the bridesmaid dresses. The neutrals of grey are relaxed and compliment the boldness of plum. Although shades of purple aren’t often associated with winter, these colors will stand out used in wedding decor and wedding party attire.
Winter is a wonderful time to have your wedding because of the ability to make it unique, beautiful and all your own. Through using various color schemes you can create different themes and atmospheres that tell the story of your romance.
